My Friend's Grandfather

Extracts from this document...


My Friend's Grandfather I was at my friend's house when I first saw him. He was sitting there reading the newspaper beside their fireplace and he seemed to be a man at peace with his world. He was sitting on a large, soft sofa reading the Bangkok Post with a cup of coffee which looked as dark as a black hole in space.
